Singer/songwriter Tucker Beathard has released the driving track “Better Than Me” today, as the first major label single taken from the forthcoming second instalment of his debut double album (Warner Music Nashville). Buy/Stream HERE.
Known for his “country songwriting approach to narrative, that builds to the payoff in the hook and uses clever wordplay,” (NPR) Beathard’s “Better Than Me” puts a unique spin on a breakup anthem with the use of his signature “southern metaphors” (Rolling Stone) and dynamic power chords that ultimately leave the singer/songwriter wishing the best for a past relationship. Co-written by Beathard, Dan Isbell and Jonathan Singleton, the track also showcases Beathard’s producer and musician skills on both lead guitar and drums.
“’Better Than Me’ has always been one of my personal favourite songs that I have written and I love playing it live,” said Beathard. “I think that the feeling behind the song is something really relatable and I couldn’t be more excited to get to release it, and hopefully at some point hear it on the radio. Having a new song out there is a great way to kick off the tour tonight, too.”
